TUB CITIZEN, U'&'OXl&llAV, MAY 17, 1011.
New Olympic and Titanic Will
Have Squash Courts,
Growing Tendency to Amuse the Voy
ager and Make Him Forget He's at
Sea Leads to Construction of Golf
Course of Eighteen Holes.
The announcement that a squash
ruckot court will be one of the fea
tures of the great White Star line
steamship Olympic, soon to he in serv
ice, and the Titanic, now building,
calls attention to the constantly grow
ing tendency to give the sea traveler
every comfort nnd luxury that can he
obtained ashore.
The squash racket court will be
placed directly above the keel, live
levels up from the skin of the ship,
counting the bottom as one, double
bottom as two, hod plates, lower orlop
and orlop. The court, which will be
available for tennis, ha ml bull, squash
or rackets, will be on the lower deck,
also designated as the "U" deck.
Court Two Stories High.
The court will bo 30 by 20 feet In
size. It will extend up through the
middle of "G" and "V" decks as high
ns the main, or "E" deck, for the
Olympic and the Titanic are each ilf
teen stories high, as follows: Floor,
double bottom, bed plntes nnd lower
orlop, orlop, lower, middle, main, sa
loon, upper, promenade, upper prome
nade, boat nnd sun docks nnd extra
compass platform.
All the other ships of the line are to
be fitted up with squash courts also.
A coach will be engaged for cacli
Features put forth by different lines
are nationally characteristic. The Rot
terdam of the Holland-American line
prides herself upon her baths. Nearly
every third room on board the Rotter
dam Is a bathroom. Even each room
of her swell suits has its own tub,
with all kinds of water.
Iiesldes a smoke room, with a bal
cony running around It, a library and
n social hall, the Kotterdam has also a
palm court. The Rotterdam was first
with a glass inclosed deck. They are
nil having them now.
'J.he -Russian-American lino main
tains a chapel upon each of its steam
ers, while ikons hang here' and there
and the sacred lamp is ever kept burn
ing in the main cabin.
Furnish All Kinds of Baths.
a lie White Star liner Adriatic now
has a swimming pool, but the Olympic
and the Titanic will have tanks 32 hv
33 feet as well as Turkish and electric
baths, with a hot room 10 by 20, si
cooling room 20 by 32 and a gymnast
um 40 by IS feet.
All the North German Lloyd liners
now have glass inclosed decks, open
nir cafes and meals a la carte or table
The Royal Mail Steam Packet com
pany erects canvas tanks which are
filled with salt water, running in and
out, for swimming in the tropics. The
Hamburg-American line also rigs the
same kind of diving pools. On the
Itoyal Mail you can purchase nn en
tire suit of clothes from the barber.
nnd the Lapland of the Hed Star line
runs a dry goods shop.
The Venezia of the Fnbre lino has a
lovers- seat, Just small enough for
two, on the boat deck looking aft.
The Titanic will have a golf course
of eighteen holes, with the hazard un
dor the lifeboats; also will the same
kind of links be laid out on the sun
deck of the Olympic. Roller skntes
will be available to all.
Adriatic Has Theater.
The Adriatic has a theater, with a
proscenium arch and several sets of
scenery executed by the deck steward,
Ernest Freeman, who paints in the
baggage room after his charges have
turned in.
The now Franconia of the Cunard
line has a machine shop with n ca
pacity for turning out a big Job on a
rolling sea. It has nlso a fresh water
distilling plant.
It was not so very long ago that the
Fabre liners carried cows that the ba
bles might have fresh milk. The crews
or the Itoyal Mail run an open game
of the lottery stylo upon the after hatch
every night under tho tropics.
The Europa of the Hamburg line, to
be tho biggest ship In the world, and
tho Deutschlnud, to bo renamed tho
Victoria Luise, a cruising steamer, are
to have U shaped tanks, within which
water will swish back and forth, Uop-
ping every time a wave strikes the
hull aud counteracting tho effect of the
blow. These are the "no seasickness
Korea's Principal Ports.
Fusan and Jinseu are the two prin
cipal ports of Korea. Fusan is ono of
tho best ports In tho far east, only
thirty miles from tho northern ex
tremity of Tsushima island, Japan.
The town has fine streets nnd is
densely populated. All over tho town
commercial activity is In evidence.
Tho population Includes 20,000 Japa
nese, whose administration of the
tow is rapidly Increasing its prosper
ity. Jlnsen, open to trade since 1882,
was thou only a small fishing vlllnge.
It is also prosperous, with' a popula
tion of 5,500, one-third Jnpanese.
Servants' References.
The utmost formality should bo nl. I
served when writing references tor
servants. The employers are Judgi-d
by the writing quite us much as ttiep
woman who is the subject of the com-'
As a servant's written reference Is
likely to go Into tho hands of persons
who are total strangers to the writer,
it Is best to employ tho third person
In the note. The communication should
always begin with the name of the for
mer employer.
Care should be taken to put Into the
reference the reason of a maid's leav
ing, for it is the first question asked
of the woman when she is seeking a
new place. Another Important point
In the communication Is that the serv
ant's honesty should be vouched for If
the former employer believes in It. It
Is nlso wise to Include In the written
character the fact that the woman Is
n good worker If she has so proved her
self. For her own protection n person writ
ing a reference should date It not only
with the month, but with the year.
Otherwise If the woman's character
should change ns time passes the per
son who vouched for her formerly will
find herself Indorsing an Individual as
sho would not do later perhaps. Such a
communication should always be writ
ten in Ink.
Lady and Gentleman.
There are some persons who sceni to
imagine it Impolite to nllude to a wo
man as a woman and are bent on ea
ing her a lady, while others allude to
a man as a gentleman. It is always
more correct to say "a nice tilii
whore the word girl is admissible (and
nowadays an unmarried woman of tor
ty may poso as a girl provided she
looks like one) or where it Is not to a I
lude to a woman as a pleasant or a
charming or an attractive woman.
You talk of a sweet or a delightfu
woman, not of n sweet or n delightful
"lady," but in the case of nn elderly
dame you occasionally say "a dear old
lady" and "such a kindold lady," "indv
being used as a mark of reverence for
nge. But. however old a man may In
he is always a man, never a "geutlr
man," in conversational language ".
clever man" or "a charming man" H
often alluded to, hut never "a clever
gentleman" and "a charming gentle
At a Luncheon.
hlx or eight persons make a good
number for nu Informal luncheon.
In the arrangement of luncheons as
well as dinners there Is a decided tend
ency to simplicity of effect. Not only
is the menu shorter than in former
years, but the dishes are lighter and
not so rich, the equipment of silver,
glass and china not so elaborate and
tho display of flowers more simple.
At a luncheon guests remove wraps
in a dressing room on nrrlval, but hats
are kept on. Gloves nre removed when
taking one's seat at table.
The hostess may lead the way In go
ing in to luncheon, walking beside a
guest, or she may ask her friends to
precede her. At an Informal party the
hostess tells the guests whero to sit in
stead of having name cards.
Guests are not expected to remain
more than half an hour after a lunch
A Man's Devotion.
Womanly dignity will always receive
respect. Yet how many wives nre
there who do not demand resnect ot
their husbands. They ask for i d
miration, devotion, yet know that n
man's nature will not cling, will uut
be constant, when he cannot look un
to tho woman he loves.
Tho mother who permits rudeness
from her sons, the wife who permits
It from her husband, the sweetheart
who does not resent it In her lover,
will all find themselves some day won
derlng why they are not treated with
deference and consideration, and the
real reason will be that they have per
mitted in themselves some lack of man
ners or of morals which has lowered
them in the eyes of the men they love.
Using Christian Names.
A vulgar habit is prevalent among
young girls, that of too freely using tho
Christian names of their young male
acquaintances. Girls when growu up
do not use tho Christian names or nick
names of young men unless tbey have
somo special reason for so doing.
An lutlmaey of years may be an ex
cuse for retailing the use of the Chris
tian name, for when Angelina In a pig
tail has played hide and seek or blind
man's buff with Edwin In Unlckerbock-
ers it is dlfllcult to becomo suddenly
ceremonious. But acquaintances of a
few months' standing unless a love
affair has changed tho position of the
parties toward each other is no ex
cuso for excessive familiarity.
Telephone Etiquette.
Correct though it is to employ a tele
phone for social purposes, there have
been established certain rules in re
gard to It, and to offend against them
is to show ignorance of etiquette.
It is not good form to reply to a writ
ten Invitation with a telephono mes
sage, both because tho manner of invi
tations should always bo duplicated
and also that It is by no means certain
mat a hostess will receive a verbal
message if It is sent through a maid.

listening to his views. So the other
morning, when Pat came into the li

plenish the wood fire, Dobblelgh, who
had boon rending a rather acrimonious
editorial in the morning paper on the
subject of tho suffragettes, ventured to
ask Pat's opinion on tho subject.
"Do you think women ought to be
nllowed to vote, Pat?" he queried.
"Sure 01 do," was the Instant re
sponse. "Wo need 'em."
"Wo need them, eh?" smiled Mr.
